our boys enjoy excellent health, and seem to
have been physically benelitted by the hardships
they have undergone during the past three
months. They left Charlestown yesterday
morning, marched eight miles to Harpte's Fer
ry, where they forded the Potomac, and took
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, arriving here
via Baltimore at eight o'clock in the evening. It
is the intention of most of the company to re
enlist for Glower, and on the return of the Cam
aim Guards, in a few days, measures will at once
be taken to term a Dauphin county regiment.
The companies of the second regiment were
quartered at the various hotels last night. All
the returning volunteers now in this city will
be paid to-day, Major Taggart having arrived
from Washington for that purpose.
WISCONSIN AND lIER 00 VER NOR
Our readers have already been informed of
the arrival of the fourth regiment of Wiscon
sin volunteers, whose tents are pitched just
outside of Camp Curtin. The first, second and
third regiments are now in the enemy's coun
try, and every where have been spoken of in
high and de;erv,d terms of praise. It is safe
to say that in no essential respect does the
fourth fall b , 4ow them. Indeed, it may fairly
be questioned, whether a regiment eau be found

this city is a gentleman, Rufus Cheeney, Esq.,
who pes.:csses rare qualifications for the post to

A REGIME) T AT CHURCH.
The Wisconsin regiment, now encamped in
this city, marched to the Locust Street Metho
dist church yesterday afternoon at five o'clock,
preceded by their excellent band, to hear a
sermon from the Chaplain of the regiment, Rev.
A. C. Barry. The spacious church was filled on
the occasion, and the services were unusually
interesting and impressive. The sermon of Mr.
Barry was exceedingly able and eloquent, and
one of the most patriotic we have listened to
for a long time. Notwithstanding the sacred.
ness of the place and the day, it was evident to
us that many personir in the audience felt like
testifying their appreciation of the discourse,
and approval of ttle . patriotic sentiments of the
speaker, by outward demonstrations of applause.
At the:olOse of the discourse, which was listen
ed toWith marked attention, by soldiers and
citizens, the choir sang the patriotic hymn,
"My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty,"
the entire audience joining in this feature of
the exercise and singing "with the spirit and
with the understanding." The services closed
with a fervent and impressive appeal to the
Throne of Grace in behalf of the soldiers and
the cause in which they are enlisted, by Rev.
Franklin Moore, the elchtient pastor of the
church. We noticed some of the general offi
cers of the regiments with their ladies,in atten
dance. We congratulate the fourth Wisconsin
upon their good fortune in securing the services
of a man for Chaplain so well qualified, in every
respect, for the position.
CELEI3R4TING THE VICTORY.
The announcement of the victory over the
rebels at Mansaaas and Bull Rap yesterday, the
news of whioh was received bore by telegraph
between eleven and twelve o'clock last night,
caused immense rejoicing throughout the city,
among soldiers and citiotns. The important
event was celebrated icy' the simultaneous ring
ing of all the public bells, firing of cannon at
Camp Curtin, and 'other jubilant demonstra
tions. The Governor's mansion was beautiful
ly illuminated in honor of the brilliant victory.
There was' a scene of wild enthusiasm at
Camp Curtin, and in the encampment of the
Wisconsin regiment, when the glorious tidings
were communicated to the soldiers. The ex
citement extended throughout the entire city
limits, the whole population uniting in cele
beetiog the -.overthrow of the traitors in their
strongest hold. Thank God we still have a
government able to withstand the assaults of
traitors, enforce the laws, and maintain the
Union and the Constitution. All honor to the
heroes who - have achieved this victory, which
decides the fikte of the whole campaign.
DEPARTURE OF TROOPS.
The Fourth Pennsylvania Reserve regiment,
Col. March, which arrived here from Easton a
few days ago, left yesterday afternoon at four
o'clock for Washington. The regiment, over
one thousand strong, is composed of men who
will give a good account of themselves when
they meet the enemy .on the field of battle.
They are neatly uniformed, well equipped in
every respect, and present an appearance cred
itable to the State.
The Wisconsin regiment, which has been
here for three or four days, received orders last
night to leave for Washington this morning at
five o'clock, and Col. Roberts' regiment, which
arrived here last evening, was ordered to leave
for Charlestown some time during the day.
PAYMENT OF VOLUNTEERS
The work of paying off the volunteers at
Camp Curtin was commenced on Saturday eve..
wing, and kept the disbursing officer engaged
until two o'clock yesterday morning. He was
a welcome visitor, many of the men having
been entirely out of money for some weeks, and
some of them suffering for the want of it. We
trust all will make good use of it, and not sub
ject themselves, as too many have done in the
past, to the hum:mating, necessity of begging
money from our citizens to obtain tobacco and
other articles. Some have already sent their
money home, and others who are sensible will
follow the example.

We have successfully outflanked the enemy.
At half past two o'clock this morning the va
rious regiments about Centreville were formed
for mareh. At three they Were in motion in
the direction of Perryville, leaving Bull's Run
to the left. At six o'clock the first gun was
tired by a thirty pound rifled cannon, sent
ahead to batter the masked batteries that might
be encountered on the road.
There was no reply from the enemy, and the
advance moved on. At Gen. McDowell's head
quarters, three miles beyond Centreville, the
greater part of the army moved to the right to
avoid abridge some dititance beyond, said to
have been undermined. They will pass over
upon pontoons prepared by Capt. Alexander of
the engineer corps, and who has inspected the
country minutely on previous 'reconnoisance,
and to whom in great a measure the plan of the
campaign is due.
A getteral battle is expected tiklaY or titinor
row, and which will probably decide the fate of
the whole campaign. If Johnson has not yet
formed a junction with Beauregard, : he will be
entirely cut off by this manceuvre. Thrown
back upon the mountains, his army will be ut
terly demoralized and probably fall into the
hands of McClellan, who is 'advancing beyond
the Blue Ridge; and if he has formed a junc
tion with Beauregard, it opens our communica
tion with General Patterson's column; and Owls
reinforced, the Federal army can crush out op
Ifwe are driven back the army can retreat upon
Centreville and keep open communication with
Washington. If Beauregard remains where he
is, his communication in the rear are endanger
ed, and Manassas being situated m the apex of
a triangle formed by railroads, a movement in
his rear would destroy his communications with
Richmond. The only danger the federal troopi
run by this flank march would be by the sud
den advance of Beauregard upon Oentatville,
interposing communication and cutting off out;
supplies. But this manoeuvre would be des:-
perate, as cutting himself off from suPplie4
place himself in an exharnited country and be r
tween the federal troops and the Potomac.
The sixty ninth New York was assigned th
post of honor in advance. The members o
this regiment have agreed onanintously to
serve, although-their time is out. All the New
York regiments will follow this example.
For, five hours one steady column of troops
passed through Centreline. The morale' of
the soldiers is excellent, all axe anions for a

It is supposed Beauregard's forces are larger,

The cannonading can occasionally be heard in
Washington from Georgetown Height.
The headquarters of the army are inaccessible
to-night, the Bresident and Cabinet.being ini

The most intense excitement is everywhere
existing to hear further from the field of 'baps.
Every returning spectator of the events is im
mediately surrounded to relate his observatiOns.
The demand for intelligence is nnsatiated.
Many unauthorised rumors prevail, which serve
to confuse the truth. the smoke of the battle
could be seen from eminences in Washingeon.
A number of members of Congress, and even
s. went to the neighborhood of Bull 'un
to witness the battle. One of them reperts
Col. Hunter, of the Third Cavalry, acting las
Major. General, as seriously, if not mortally
wounded. It is stated with confidence in all
quarters that Col. Cameron, of the seventy
ninth regiment, brother of the Secretary; of
War, and Col. Slocum, of the Second Rhode
Maud regiment, were kW*, •
A most severe battle was foughiciaTy
Bull's Run biidge. The conflict was despezate,
lading over nine hours. The programme, as
stated In the first dispatch, was carried out itn
tif the troops met with a succession of mashed
batteries, which were attacked with vigor alr•
success after severe loss of life. Our troops
advanced as follows
Col. Richardson, who distinguished! himself
in the previous engagement, proceeded on the
left, with the four regiments of the Fourth
brigade, to hold the battery hill on the War
renton road in the vicinity of the place where
the last battle was fought. The flank move
ments were described in the first . dispatch.—
Schneek's and Shermates brigades, of Tyler's
division, advanced ,by the Warrenton road
while Ileinteleman's and Hunter's divisions,
took the fork of Warrenton road to move be
tween Bull Run and Mammas Junction. Key's
brigade remained at Centreville.
Inibrrnation was received by Tyler's command
of the existence of the enemy's battery com
manding the road. Our troops were then form
ed in battle array, the Second New York and
Second Ohio on the left, the Second Ohio and
Second Wisconsin and Seventy-ninth, Thirteenth
and Sixty ninth New York on the right. Col.
Miles' division followed in the rear.
The first raoge gun was fired by Sherman's
battery at ten minutes of seven. The rebels
did not return his shot until as hour and a half
afterwards. When Hunter's division came up
another battle became general. Col, Hunter's
movement to gain the -rear of thereiemy wits
almost a success. The enemy's position
opened on by several of Carlisle's howitze vi t a ,
followed by alight skirmishing. The rebels
rapidly received reinforcements from Manassas
Junction after the attack was opened.
The battle consisted in
.a succession of fires
from masked batteries, Which - Opened in every
direction. When one was silenced its place
was supplied by two, and in the daring charges
of our infantry in unmasking them. The Sec
ond Ohio and Second New York militia were
marched by flack through the woods by a new
made road within a few miles of the main road
when they came on a battery of eight guns with
four regiments fla nked in the rear.
Our men were immediately ordered to lie
down on either side of the road, in order to al
low two pieces of artillery to pass through
and attack the work, when this battery opened
upon us, and killed, on the third round, Lieni.
Dempsy, of company G, New York Second,
and Mr. Maxwell, a druniraer, and seriously
wounding several others.
Our troops were kept for fifteen or twenty
minutes under a galling fire, not being able to
exchange shots with the enemy, although with
in stones throw of their batteries. They
succeeded in retiring in regular order and
with their battery. The most gallant
charge of the day was made by the New York„
Sixty-ninth, Seventy-ninth and Thirteenth, who
rushed up upon one of the enemy's batteries,
firing as they proceeded with perfect
eclat and attacking it with the bayonet's point:
The yell of triumph , now seemed to carryall
before it. They. found that the rebels had
abandoned the battery only taking one gun,
but this success was acquired only after a sever 4
loss of life, in which the sixty-ninth severely
suffered; and it was reported that the Lieut,
Colonel was amongst the first killed.
The. Zousves also distinguished themselves by
their spirited assault on the batteries at the
point of the bayonet, but it is feared that their.
loss is immense. Up to the hour of three`
o'clock P. M. it was generally understood that
we had h em med in the . enemy entirely and tbat
theY were gmdually retiring,' that Enter had
driven them back in the rear, that Heintzle
